Schizophrenia Research Forum meeting reports

This year I’ve traveled near and far to cover the latest schizophrenia-related findings at three different meetings. This turned into nine meeting reports published at Schizophrenia Research Forum.

SIRS 2012 — The pile of schizophrenia genetics puzzle pieces grows

More than 1,600 researchers and clinicians gathered in a Florence from 14-18 April 2012 to discuss new schizophrenia research at the Third Schizophrenia International Research Society (SIRS) conference. There, researchers highlighted their latest genetics findings, which illustrated that raw information — even the high-resolution kind provided by sequencing — is no substitute for a true understanding of the genetic roots of the disorder.
